Christmas in Old Town
Each year in Old Town Albuquerque, there is an event called Holiday Stroll. It is usually held the first weekend in December and includes many performers, luminarias and the giant Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
Most of the businesses in Old Town go all out with lights and decorations. (No, that is no ghost peeking from behind that post!)
The red chile decorations are beautiful and can be seen no where else but New Mexico!
These lovely scenes can be photographed and enjoyed not just during Holiday Stroll but throughout the entire Christmas season.
There are also events most weekends during the entire month of December.
"We should understand well that all things are the work of the Great Spirit. We should know the Great Spirit is within all things: the trees, the grasses, the rivers, the mountains and the four legged and winged peoples; and even more important, we should understand that the Great Spirit is also above all these things and peoples. When we do understand all this deeply in our hearts, then we will fear and love and know the Great Spirit, and then we will act and live as the Spirit intends" ~ Black Elk
